I would just like to know what did these towns do before there was a casino? Did they not fix roads and provide other basic services?

I agree. I think the state new and expected this money in turn the state leaders new that their was more money for themselves. Sad but true. Seneca nation has made generous donations on top of casino money to help fix roads and home improvement. Cant forget the beautiful fireworks show that seneca nation puts on every year for the city of niagara falls. The non natives need to start asking where all the money is going and stop hating natives for trying to help boost the seventh wonder of the world.

Lol what casino money? They dont pay it. And when a bill is expected to be payed its added to the budget. Do you really think they would have let the casino be built (with that eyesore of a sign) if there wasnt any funds involved? Casino traffic is what contributed to the wear on the roads, and casino traffic is what caused the increase in police (out if the pockets of the localities), casinos cause problems. If the nation doesnt pay the money, the roads will never be fixed and people will go to places that dont beat up their vehicles.
